Amphidolis

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Amphidolis or Amphidolia (Greek: Αμφιδολίς / Αμφιδολία) was an ancient city north of Olympia, Greece and was a market town. It was situated on the mountain road that runs from Elis to Olympia. In earlier times it was a city in the Pisatis district. Amphidolis is mentioned by Strabo in his Geographica as a market town near the town Alesiaeum (formerly Aleisium).[1]

People from Amphidolis took part in the Battle of Nemea (394 BCE) as slingers. They also served in the Trojan War (in the Bronze Age).

The village of Karatoula is located at the site of Amphidolis.[citation needed]
